We lived in front of an orchard when I was growing up, so Autumn always brings back memories of climbing into the trees and eating way too many apples.  Dogs and horses will often eat a chunk of apple raw and their wild cousins snack on fallen fruit.  We like to make apple season a little more fun with homemade apple dog and horse treats.  🙂 Happy Autumn!
